Yes, but backup of course is only half (or usually less than half) the
solution. Assuming Martians came and took away your appliance, what
would be the steps to getting everything up and running again, and how
long and how much effort would it take?

(This is where Dropbox-like sync systems come in handy; a complete
server loss can generally be mitigated by having another server
elsewhere ready to spin up and a cold or hot (depending on your
required restore time and how much you're willing to spend)
backup/sync of the full data set from the original server.
